I had a perfect view of that hit from my seats. It was 2 big strides late. Like a legit 3 count. Absolutely predatory.That article was pathetic.
The Rome hit was two strides late and the head was the principle point of contact. The way they harp on that is embarrising.
Although in their defense, no team has ever had injured players and managed to win a Stanley Cup.
Hamhuis left the first game with an injury and never returned. (I thought it looked like it might have been related to a high cross-check from Krejci retaliating for a hip check on Lucic when watching the replays, but what I've been able to find indicates that it was a hernia and other abdominal injuries.)Yeah, a healthy Manny Malhotra would have been a real game changer. Give me a break. Those player quotes are hilarious. They were over confident, overrated and believed their own hype.
Absolutely, the Bruins were plenty banged up as well by the end. They didn’t have Malhotra, the Bruins didn’t have Marc Savard. Andrew Ference played that finals series with a shoulder held together with glue duct tape. He could barely lift the cup.As the poet Mark Recchi said, "take a look inside our fucking locker room" (paraphrased)
I’ll just settle for no fans games. They were/are so god damned good this season. Bergeron and Marchand still in their peaks. Pasta was getting 50+. McAvoy blooming into an annual Norris candidate. Games played may hurt, but Rask was Vezina caliber.We’re not gonna see a Bruins game with fans until at least 2021
This x1,000,000%.I’ll just settle for no fans games. They were/are so god damned good this season. Bergeron and Marchand still in their peaks. Pasta was getting 50+. McAvoy blooming into an annual Norris candidate. Games played may hurt, but Rask was Vezina caliber.
Who knows what would’ve happened with no interruption, but fuck were they good.
Fuck not "getting political". Politics is the cause of the pandemic and the reason Hockey isn't being played right now.We’re not gonna see a Bruins game with fans until at least 2021
Did you at least go full Marchand / McGregor strut after realizing it?It’s hot out so since I’m working from home, went shirtless today. It was going well until I walked into a video conference call my wife was having with her coworkers. Bah. Oh well, made it 2.5 months before making that kind of mistake, and it could’ve been worse.
